Ready to make a difference?

Volunteers are at the heart of our hospice patient care team. The Jean Waddle Care Center is a personalized care program with many needs to be met by many families. This can only become a reality through dedicated, talented and professional people. Volunteers provide the essential variety necessary to meet every family’s requests. Because we provided care during an intense, emotional, and crucial time, volunteers make a significant impact. There are many ways to volunteer including through in-office support, patient care, bereavement care, special events, and special projects.
